First ‘Synthetic Marijuana’ Arrest Made in Louisiana
Posted on Aug 18, 2010 in Courts, Drugs, Local Issues
Police in Slidell have reported what appears to be the first arrest in Louisiana for possession of a marijuana substitute commonly referred to as “Mojo” (also known as “spice”) in conjunction with a State Law that went into effect on August 15, 2010.
Several strains of incense that contain synthetic derivatives of THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) have recently risen to prominence across the country due largely to the fact that many states have yet to officially ban their sale or possession.
The law that went into effect in Louisiana last week classifies “Mojo” as a Schedule I Controlled Dangerous Substance – the same classification that applies to Marijuana, Ecstacy, Heroin, LSD, GHB, and any other substances which are currently deemed by the state to have no accepted medical use.
